choo choo...

Ah, so what do we have here?
Why I do believe it's the Drama Train!
And guess who is not buying a ticket??
That would be ME!
Why is it, my friends, that some people
are so enamored with life's dramas?
As for me, I like calm, clear seas
with a beautiful, peaceful view of the horizon.
I understand that we all have problems and unpleasantness
in our lives, but the attraction and devotion
some feel for misery eludes me.
I believe our thoughts have tremendous power.
I choose to give that power not to despair, but to joy.
We all have trials and sorrows not of our making, but I choose
my response. Sometimes I am sad, but not for long.
I choose to see this world as benevolent
and rife with possibility. And I am grateful, always,
for this beautiful, heartbreaking, tender gift of life.
So, I will let the Drama Train leave without me.

I swear on this monkey's fuzzy head...

I have not forgotten this blog or my millions of loyal readers!
Life has intervened. School is in full swing, so much of my time is spent
nagging my kids about homework. I've found a few moments for some
art projects and, as always, I am busy with digital graphics work.

I am happy to report that I have been victorious in my battle with Fry's Electronics
and after an eight month siege I am the owner of a marvelous new laptop! My patience,
persistence and knowledge that I was in the right have prevailed. JOY!

I am ignoring the signs of fall. Actually, I plan to ignore fall and winter outright! I am going dwell
in a mental summer henceforth. So there...
And in that spirit I am off to enjoy some sunshine and an icy Michelob Ultra Lime Cactus~ summer in a bottle!
Join me, okay?
